UW-Eau Claire Community Offers
Support During National Tragedy
MAILED: Sept. 11, 2001

         EAU CLAIRE — Classes and scheduled activities at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will continue today, recognizing the importance of students, faculty and staff coming together to offer one another support as today’s national tragedy continues to unfold.
         “Everyone is confused, stunned and affected by today’s events,” Chancellor Donald Mash said. “It’s extremely important that we – as a campus community -- support one another, be it in a class, a meeting or in informal conversation.
         “We think that we can be of most help to all members of the campus community by coming together as we struggle to deal with our emotions during this time of crisis.”
         Faculty are encouraged to conduct their classes in such ways to offer support to students and other members of the campus community, be that through conversation, gathering around a television or whatever else they think is appropriate, Mash said.
         UW-Eau Claire administrators will continue to monitor the events and will provide additional updates via e-mail and the media as appropriate.
